The Lyrics

Odd as it may seem, this was actually the first song I prepared before considering going through the album. Having survived the siren's noise against his body, while having no criminal repercussions or reparations for pain and suffering, Picket Gate now wonders if this whole magic business is a problem or not. As he is now a political junkie, told his friends about this, and given that everyone else has amnesia (convenient), Picket Gate seeks advice from his dad (still not fixed on the name). As a reminder,(S.A.E.M. = Students Against Equestria Magic)
(Picket Gate)
Father do you think we’ll get along?
Father will their pain make them strong?
Father do you think magic will cross the line?
Ooohhh pa, will they ever pay the fine?

Father am I the leader that they need?
Father will I have the tools to succeed?
Father do you think those girls might be right?
Ooohhh pa, should I try to cause a fight?

(Scabbard sheath or Sombra)
Hush now sonny, sonny, don’t you cry
Father will make sure that justice is served
And all of those criminals get what’s deserved
He is going to make sure that you feel no pain
With all those listeners that will join up with S.A.E.M.
Father will make sure that your message is loud
Ooohhh babe, ooohhh, babe, ooohh babe
You know that you’ve made your mom proud

(Guitar Solo)

(Picket Gate)
Father is equestria dangerous – for me?
Father is travel worth the risk – to me?
Father will they ship me with lightning dust?
Ooohhh pa, is our win a real must

(Scabbard sheath or Sombra)
Hush now sonny, sonny don't you cry
Father will make sure that your story gets told
To all that would hear you both young and old
Father knows this girl is someone to keep
And given her loss that means you should not weep
Father will keep your message steady on course
Ooohhh babe, ooohhh, babe, ooohh babe
You’re never going to end up a horse

(Picket Gate)
Father have you met Shattered Gate?*
*Shattered Gate is a side effect of the siren's green gas entering his system. An aberration of magic that gives Picket Gate insomnia and bad dreams of a world unregulated with equestrian magic. These dreams force his resolve to take action, despite not knowing that anger is a quality that triggers magic. A band-aid solution is found by taking prescribed medication, with the advice from Ivy Drip. Scalding Wok, of a far east decent, has been seen as a jolly kind of individual. He was not intimidated by fat jokes but merely brushed them off. His family runs a bed and breakfast hotel, and each member contributes to the business in their own way. At a young age, Scalding Wok wanted suggested a food truck spin-off venture for a music festival. Most of the family agreed, but while there, some idiot did not pay attention to the no-smoking sign near the propane tanks (possibly for competitive purposes). Those of Scalding Wok's family (insert culinary related names here) noticed, but Scalding Wok himself barely got out alive. His legs and some muscle fat tissue got 2nd degree burns from the explosion. The smoker got arrested for arson and public endangerment. It was shocking and painful, but that experience did not deter him from wanting to "tame the flame" through his cooking expertise. The food truck idea was never brought up again. The wounds have since healed him at present. As such, he has since become more involved in food preparation for the family B&B, and studied up on new recipes. One weakness around his cooking are deserts (I can't make him an OP chef prodigy). There may have been some "healthy" conversations between Lightning Dust and Scalding Wok about not being fit with his mass, but that has grown into a mutual acceptance of each difference. Fortunately, Scalding Wok had a more wise and provocative friend on his side since Grade 5. Scalding Wok Bio: Age: 16.5 years old, Height 5"3, Heavier than most students by 20-30 lbs. Interests include canoeing, archery, cooking (the only male student in Canterlot High School taking Home Ec.), board games, astrology, playing steel drums. Next Track: Goodbye Normal Life.

Yikes, your story is ambitious, creative and sprawling...and just not my cup of tea. But 555 just for doing what you love and doing it well. I hope you will achieve that authorial satisfaction that I do when concluding a parody saga and say to yourself, "I DID it!" with a big ol'grin on your face.

Thanks for gauging on the story aspect. I am surprised you hung in there up to this track, since you did not comment nor vote, on the previous tracks after On The Stage. I do have some ideas of where these two cliques of friends, (one with and the other w/o magic), create the intersecting conflict in side 2 of the Wall.
